One Ocean Swim Day 30

One Ocean Swim Day 30

Day 30 – another early start for us and our last swim for a while! We travelled back to the PE harbour, and this time we were lucky that we did not have to wait to be let in, so we got going around 6:30 am on a clear, calm and flat sea with the sun shining brightly...

Day 29 was another rest day. Yesterday was, thankfully, a productive day. We headed to Port Alfred school to give a talk to both the high school and junior school. It was great. I love seeing young kids so intrigued and involved in conversations. They are our future...

One Ocean Swim Day 28

Wow, what a Day 28! I woke up after a restless night’s sleep. Everything is aching. I can’t lie on the right side of my body for very long as my shoulder and elbow ache. On my left-hand side, my hip aches. I also have lower backaches. I was dreading the swim today, as...

Day 27 – completed! We set off from the harbour just after 6:30 am today with Kim’s daughter Jasmine and Kim’s Dad (Mike) joining us. It was very chilly as a cold front throughout the country was coming, with snow expected in some places. The wind wasn’t predicted,...

It’s Day 26. After a restless night’s sleep due to crazy winds, we woke at 5 am, wondering what today would hold. Heavy winds were predicted from 11 am onwards, and tomorrow was a right-off due to the continued wind. We wanted to get out early to catch our gap and...

One Ocean Swim Day 25

I woke up on Day 25 after a fabulous sleep. Albeit, I woke reluctantly at 5:15 to get going for another day out at sea. My body had recovered pretty well after yesterday’s Epson salt bath, nap and a short massage of the niggly right arm. My niggles are starting to...

Day 24 – but day 6 of being out of the water! At the start of this day, we were all more than ready to get back into action. We have been in PE since Friday, staying with our incredible hosts, The Withuhns. Kim, Denzil and Josh have been phenomenal in accommodating...

One Ocean Swim Day 23

Today was, again, potentially our final day of swimming as we have run out of cash. This constant scrambling for funding is taking its toll and is all-consuming when we should be free to just focus on what we all do best- swim, paddle, skipper, feed. We woke up at...

One Ocean Swim Day 22

Day 22 is upon us. I slept the best I had for days, and we woke at 5:30 am to eat, pack and head to launch from Mgwalame. We were met by a large group of supporters, including Nandi from Port Alfred High (she heads up the eco-club). I love it when the youth are...

One Ocean Swim Day 21

There is another day of swimming. Sadly, I had a very restless sleep due to shoulder pain, overthinking, overheating and just being anxious about the early wake-up. It was the longest short night, and eventually, we work up at 3:15 am and set out to action. First was...
